It seems the test checks for compiler specific functionality, and chose
a weird way of acting on compilers that do not have said functionality.
I would have just made the entire test a no-op on those compilers. You
may want to create a ticket for this, so the author checks it.

In any case, running the tests before and after your changes and then
diffing them should be enough to spot those trivial syntax errors. You
certainly don't need to fix test that were already failing.
